Osteo-Arthritis

Osteo-arthritis is a condition which afflicts the fingers, hand and wrist in equal measure. It can be painful and debilitating but treatment options need not be complex or even surgical.

Often it is possible to relieve symptoms and treat the condition with a combination of therapy, analgesics and injections.

In the more debilitating conditions such as advanced arthritis of the base of the thumb at the wrist, surgery can be curative.
